My World

My Year - 1983

1983 saw Margaret Thatcher return to Downing Street in a landslide, Shergar kidnapped by the IRA, and Return of the Jedi burst onto the big screen. Bjorn Borg retired from tennis, the US invaded Grenada, and the £1 coin was introduced. Missiles arrived at Greenham Common, Blair and Brown became MPs, and Madonna released her debut record.
